Viral illness: This could be one of a number of viral illnesses. The number one that comes to mind at your child's age is mono. A blood test could be done to rule this in or out. Many of these viruses that cause a similar constellation of symptoms are self-limiting - this means your body will clear them up on its own, and child should get plenty of rest, fluids and good diet. Get her further checked out. ...Read more

Sudden onset of sore throat, wheezing, loss of voice, Fluid in ears but no runny nose fever or any other symptoms could this be strep throat?

Unlikely: Most probably it's a viral infection leading to this constellation of symptoms, unlikely to be streptococcal pharyngitis from the outset, although bacteria may kick in later, but symptoms will change. Saline nasal washes, salt water gargles for decongestion remain the mainstay for treatment though, together with voice rest,fluids,bronchodilator for wheezing if you're prescribed one, c MD if worse ...Read more

What's the symptom difference of mono and strep throat. ?

Similar but: Both cause very sore throat with swelling and fever. Both can be diagnosed readily with a rapid test. Mono rapid test is less accurate. Mono significant systemic symptoms such as fatigue, sleepiness, nausea, and the swelling tends to be more severe and more dramatic appearing. Strep gets better much faster and does justify antibiotics in children and teens. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/strep-throat/basics/symptoms/con-http://www.pennmedicine.org/encyclopedia/em_PrintArticle.aspx?gcid=000591 ...Read more
